In this study, we developed MobileNurseTM; a prototype of mobile nursing information system using PDA. MobileNurseTM is designed to communicate with hospital information system(HIS) via mobile support station(MSS) which interchanges and stores clinical data. MobileNurseTM consists of 3 components. The first component is medical order checking module. It enables nurses to retrieve patients' information such as physicians' orders and test results at anywhere or anytime. The second component is nursing recording module which helps nurses to record the results of their practices at bedside. On the autosynchronization of MSS and PDA, the data in PDA and MSS can be interchanged and updated respectively. The last component is nursing unit care planing module. It is helpful for retrieving the nursing care plans of patients that are expected to be done, such as patients' discharge, consultation, or transfer. With use of PDA in clinical environment, nurses can spend more time on caring for patients by reducing time-consuming, redundant paperwork. It is promising that this 'point-of-care system enables nurses to improve the quality of nursing care.
